Node shutdown

Hello,

I'm working on a node with an internal state machine. The node has to run the main loop in the "running" state, then after using Ctrl+C (or sending a rosnode kill) switch into a "closing" state do some stuff (maybe ROS related, like publishing on a topic) and then shutdown completely. In synthesis, I need to break the main loop without using ros::shutdown().

Currently I'm using an implementation similar to the one suggested here: http://answers.ros.org/question/27655...

Is this one still the best (and probably only) approach? Or there is a way to "split" the shutdown procedure?

I see, thank you.

Is there any future plan on extending the shutdown procedure and give to the developers more control over it?
